    Lets not forget there are different levels of what we call space. Good times just the same.

    I can see two plausible ways of making a video like this. You can either launch your lego and camera in a weather balloon, or you can just use a blue screen and a moving light source. Anyone care to guess which method was employed here?

    @comp_wizard. Yeah, I was curious about that too. On their page, they say "making of video coming soon" or something like that

    Seems like editing that video on a green screen using movable light source to recreate the sun from some stock footage is a lot harder than filling a balloon up with air and letting it go.

    Unnecessarily complex skepticism

    there are a bunch of other videos like these online, some of them with the full thing and much more stable, its pretty cool to watch. I never understand how they make it not fall in another continent or something.

    @Raicuparta, because it is still spinning with the Earth as it floats up. it stays in a relative position above the launch site.

    For an effort by a couple of schoolkids, this is pretty sweet. Recording the curvature of the Earth and black of space is as much as you could hope for with a balloon.
    That`s all I wanted to point out. Now you Yanks can make more dumb comments about Canada`s space program.

    Not space. I cant stress that enough, its so very far from being in space. this is a weather balloon, not even a high altitude ballon.

    Or a weather balloon? Or the sunlight glinting off a low orbital sattelite?

    This was just on our local news. They said it was a weather balloon. It burst, but a parachute saved it. It came down about 75 miles from where they launched it. But it had a GPS on it, so they could find it. They said it cost about $400.

    @Eddo_H You notice that dinky weather ballon but not the huge flash of light from 0:28-0:31? Since it is so dim in the second sighting, it must have been originally much closer to the Legos` guy.
